and through my involvement with x5, i detoured back into hi path to my flight to space, and ended up in russia, training as a backup, and when i was there, i had no idea that i would get a chance tofully to space. i was just given an opportunity to go and train. and a lot of people may have said, well, why should i spend six months in the cold winter of moscow, and just go there for no apparent reason. and to me it was an opportunity to go spend time if with the astronauts and go to the same places the first person who went to space resided, and that whole history of the russian space program compelled me to go there. and being there gave me that opportunity to be at the right place at the right time. unfortunately for the primary crew member, northwestern who was suppose -- the person who was supposed to fliful he developed kidney stone which disqualified him from the flight. but fortunately for me, i was there to say, i'll take his seat! and that what i did. and this is another point i usually -- when i talk to students, which i do quite often, i try to tell them that if you have a passion,
. it was a lost opportunity of strengthening he could have done in the region. for china, iran, and russia and pakistan, we need more allies in that region and not to isolate ourselves. to leave afghanistan too quickly will put them in the arms of other countries. we would miss an opportunity to grow a real partnership over there. i definitely think maybe that's not military, maybe state department stuff instead. [indiscernible] i feel like cutting banks' stock will limit our ability to have that impact. when we talk about the american economy and american workers and values, it's good for us to be good to other places and that helps us here at home too. [indiscernible] it affects us in an indirect way, maybe not as much as social security and medicare. sequestration has really gotten people up in arms. i was looking for more of him to talk about that or how he was going to reduce the deficit host: we will talk about all the issues that president obama laid out in the state of the union address including the responses by the republicans. lawmakers will join us on the show. our boast is --
, but in terms of impact, russia hasn't been reset. the arab spring, we're hardly ahead of that curve. iran is closer to a nuclear weapon. relations with israel are anything but smooth all these years later, 4 1/2 years later. but she leaves with about a 80% approval rating. >> steve: she also has that stain on her resume of benghazi. during the question and answer sequence at the council of foreign relations yesterday, she said, we know leadership has its cost that ambassador chris stevens and the other three americans understood that danger and, quote, we must always strive to be worthy of that honor. >> gretchen: secretary of state coming in, john kerry, has a huge job. we got so many problems all around the world. we've got the explosion in turkey this morning. don't know if that's a terrorist attack. we got syria, the mali and al-qaeda growing in northern africa. not to mention the nuclear problems in iran and north korea and you could go on and on and on. so huge job. let's look back on hillary clinton's time as secretary of state. i guess we have a little fun with this [ laughter ]
the conflict. iran and russia called it provocative. even in turkey itself they are concerned that group which claimed responsibility for the attack on the u.s. am bass see last friday cited this deployment. others are saying the u.s. is still not doing enough, with over 60,000 dead, 700,000 revenue geez, they say the states are still standing a bit by the side hraoeufpblts as we saw last week with that israeli strike again a target inside syria more and more this conflict is becoming a regional conflict, and now some folks from the states are involved. very close. back to you, greg. gregg: greg palkot reporting live inside near the syrian border. martha: new information is coming to light about that power outage that happened during the super bowl sunday. it turns out the half hour black out may not have come as a big surprise to soft stadium officials there. gregg: a bombshell courtroom confession from a woman accused of killing her boyfriend while she now says she did it, she readily admits it, she said her difficult childhood was a critical factor. can that really help her avoid the death
of the meteor shower already? oh, my gosh. these pictures in russia, western siberia. reports now that this meteor, which landed, has injured some 500 people, although the cars barely noticed. people just kept driving. >> eyes on the road, they're focused. >> the meteor shower created a 125 mile long sonic boom. many of the injured were hurt by sonic glass. the ministry is urging people not to panic. the g-20 is happening basically 1,000 miles away. unrelated to the asteroid which is going to fly by closely today as well, which people are afraid could knock out some satellites. only about like 19,000 miles in the air. don't panic. if glass is going to shatter randomly in your home, that's a little panic worthy, but -- >> when we come back, is now the time the bet on bonds? we'll hear from the man barren is calling the best around. also, an exclusive with kevin plank. he'll explain how his company plans to score with its new concept score. we had a little tick up, but still, that industrial production number was a slight risk. more straight ahead. i know what you're thinking... tra
indeed. ashley: we have the g20 getting together in russia this week. it seems the hot topic is the currency wars and i'm sure a lot of attention will be put on japan but they're not going to shed any tears, are they? they're quite happy to devalue the yen because they need their exports to get a boost. is there anything the g20 can do on that issue? >> well, as you've seen through the verbage in the press, the statement by the g7, subsequent clarifying statements and leaking of a potential draft statement by the g20 there is concern less that someone important, perhaps, japan, begins actually intervening in currency markets. that would be crossing a red line and could cause some real problems that could generate market volatility, could be damaging. so i suspect there's a bit of conflating in the public discussion what's going on. it is one thing to want your currency to be a bit lower. it is another thing to actively intervene. that would be unacceptable to everyone's partners. ashley: we'll be following the g20 carefully. thank you so much. john lipsky, with johns hopkins
, russia, all at each other's throats. jon: i was talking with gordon earlier. he said we tend to lean on the chinese and get them to stop this. he doesn't think that is viable solution this time. >> he is absolutely right. i'm not a buyer somehow we'll pull china on side with us to bring north korea into the fold. i just don't see how we constantly fool ourselves into thinking that. if you look at china, there is lot of people like to make what they do more complex than it is, just imagine what is in their best interests and expect them to do it. it is not in their best interests to promote instability in north korea. therefore they will continue to prop up that regime no matter what we would like them to do. >> they are worried about the collapse of the north korean government, mass starvation, millions of starving north koreans flooding into china. that is essentially what they're worried about, right? >> i think the risk, basically the north korean refugees will move south into south korea. we have demined at least three corridors through the demilitarized zone. the china nice and
addressing the real problems of out-of-control spending. russia and iran being closer to having a nuclear weapon. are we really thinking that -- i mean, what can we possibly do in our lawmakers are not balancing the books the way that they should be? >> well, we demand change. i mean, my organization concerned vets for america trying to inject veterans voice into this discussion to say we understand what a threat looks like. i have walked on the battlefield and i know what a bad guy looks like. if we don't get our spending under control as admiral mullen says the single largest threat to national security. dysfunction is washington is the biggest threat we face. if we don't get these things in order cop out, bad policy like sequestration that guts our military and navy fleet and guts our marine corps and army in a a way we can't afford in a dangerous world. at the same time we have to recognize we better get our spending under control. dod can contribute to that by cutting fat. being smarter how it spends the dollars it does have. ultimately we have got to find courage in washington to ge
